Happy 4th of July!

A big Happy 4th of July to all my US friends!  Even though I live just outside of Washington DC and have had my share of fireworks on the National Mall, I still equate 4th of July with small town parades and local fireworks.  I'm talking about the kind of parade where you sit on the curb and wave at the Strawberry Festival princesses going down main street riding in vintage convertibles.  Where the local politicians throw tootsie rolls to the kids from a golf cart.  I have waved at more scouts, baton-twirlers, cloggers, fire fighters, and folks leading farm animals than I care to admit.  And I loved every minute of it:)  [well, maybe except for the clowns;)]
No matter how you celebrate 4th of July, this card's for you!

Thanks so much for stopping in today! 

Mahalo and Aloha,


  1. I'm with you on the clowns, JJ! They kind of freak me out...what exactly are they hiding??? I can hear our parade lining up just down the block on Main Street, all set to go in 45 minutes. Later tonight we'll walk to the bluffs over Lake Michigan and watch the fireworks. It's going to be a wonderful 4th. Hope you and your family enjoy today too. : ) Bev
    Oh! And a perfect celebratory card too!

  2. This is so fun and cute!!! Love it! Happy 4th to you...enjoy! :)

  3. Absolutely adorable card, JJ! I love how the professor is holding his little flag, and your shiny cars are so fun...looks like a fabulous Main St. USA parade to me! Wishing you and your family a Happy 4th of July!!!
